Hi I'm back at my blog..I've had a very busy day..I started by sorting through my ripening tomatoes and made a big batch of salsa..way easier with my new food processor :) but you still have to take off the skins..yuck..kitchen was a mess after wards. I was going to make 2 batches but only I eat it so one big batch will be enough, so I made the rest of the ripe tomatoes into freezer tomato sauce.
I picked up some groceries yesterday for my 86 year old neighbor, since her son is busy combining. they hadn't come to pick them up yet so I went down for coffee and drop off her groceries..besides paying for the groceries she gave me fresh baked buns and a fresh baked loaf of bread..wow :) very yummy.
Hubby was away from home all day baling so I quadded 3 herds and put out salt and minerals and checked our herd of bulls and gave them a salt block, too. I also picked up pine cones and sticks and put them in brown lunch bags for fire starters for our wood stoves.. Tomorrow is hubby`s birthday and that`s part of his gift, plus a new chore coat, 3 pairs of gloves, a farmer`s almanac and a book on the history of beer in Canada. I baked him a German chocolate cake for his birthday,too.
I had a few phone calls and did some web surfing...and did an endless supply of dirty dishes!!
Supper was chicken in the crock pot with bbq sauce and leftover veggies.
The weekend has gone by too fast. Tomorrow we have a PFRA round up then hubby will go back baling..time to quit typing so much since I cut one of my fingers on the food processor blade and it hurts to type (just certain letters..right ring finger..)
Quick up date on Oct goals..
